This one group,( I won't mention the name because the administrator has not given me permission) had a blow out discussion about blacks killing more than whites. I was just there for the comments. I've learned to STFU when talking to people who are angry and stupid. Especially when they suffer from a combination of both. In school I had to research a similar topic; rather I chose to research this topic because I didn't think blacks killed more than whites.(I still don't ) I paused for a second a...

Stacey Dash ‘s awkward #Oscars appearance: WATCH

And if you're as puzzled as we are, well, yeah.

The room fell silent. Watch the, er, weird joke at Us Weekly.
